Ksenia Chmutina is a Professor of Disaster Studies at the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering at Loughborough University. Her research focuses on the processes of urban disaster risk creation and systemic implications of sustainability and resilience in the context of neoliberalism. Her research interests also include narratives and framings of disasters, intersectionality and vulnerability, and interlinkages between critical urban studies, cultural heritage, and disaster studies. A core part of her activities is science communication: she is a co-host of a popular podcast 'Disasters: Deconstructed'. Ksenia uses her work to draw attention to the fact that disasters are not natural.
"This Handbook provides a comprehensive and interdisciplinary overview of the intersections between cultural heritage and disaster risks. It serves as a defining reference, presenting the key concepts and policy arena that disaster risk management and cultural heritage currently operate. With 22 contributions from leading scholars and practitioners in the field, chapters explore the various contexts for cultural heritage and disaster risk management, illustrated through case studies from around the world. This Handbook explores a wide range of topics and themes, such as climate change, conflict, urbanisation, the role of community and explores the relationships with a range of sectors such as governance and policy, finance, infrastructure, shelter, and urban planning. It also presents critiques on some of the issues that are often taken for granted, including technocratic approaches, nature/culture binary, the romanticisation of traditional knowledges and the role of recovery and reconstruction. Insights into the future are also presenting, concluding with a detailed agenda of proposed action to be taken in the field. Offering critical reflections on the topic, this book caters to students, researchers, professionals, and policy makers"-- Provided by publisher.
